MiTi801: Laser Etched Holiday Glassware

Etch into glass using TechShop's laser cutting machine!

After choosing from a selection of holiday-themed designs, you'll use a rotary attachment tool for the laser cutter, which allows you to etch into cylindrical items -- perfect for mugs, glasses, baseball bats and more! Next, you'll observe as the laser etches the design into your 16 oz glass.

You will walk away with your very own etched glass. Use it to enjoy cider, eggnog, or give it to a friend as a cool gift!
This Make-it, Take-it workshop is open to both members and non-members of TechShop.


Note: This is not a Safety and Basic Usage class. If you want to make more customized items, check out our Laser Rotary Attachment SBU class, offered regularly.

Make a customized leather wallet from start to finish in this fun course! Designed by one of the leading TechShop textiles instructors, Maddison has more than ten years of sewing experience. Students will walk in the class with their ideas, and walk out with a great wallet they can show off to all of their friends!

Participants are encouraged to come with multiple black and white images to the class so the instructor can help them choose the best one to etch on their pouch. Students will have the option of using plain leather, painting on leather, as well as adding magnetic snaps to give your wallet that great customization. Students will spend time designing their wallet, lasering, and then using the walking foot sewing machine to sew it up. Any machines students have not taken a class on will be done by the instructor.
